“On Being Right and Eating Animals”: Dr. Kelly Brogan
Here’s a lovely piece: food for thought, for sure…
If it is one thing the discovery of the microbiome is revealing, it’s that we all have very different workings inside, depending upon the health of our microbiome and the chemistry of each of our particular systems at the moment.
